cleared their schedule for debate rehearsals. the president's practicing right now at nevada. mitt romney's resuming his practice sessions after a welcoming rally tonight in denver. both sides downplaying expectations. but cnn's chief political correspondent candy crowley who's moderating, by the way, the second presidential debate, noticed one high-profile exception. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of t
to happen in this presidential election right now. mitt romney needs to draw the contrast. i think that mitt romney needs to say something along the line, when i was saving the olympics after 9-11, where was barak obama? who do you want? make the decision. this is a country in crisis once again. economic security, energy security, national security. so draw the contrast. i think that's what we tried to do in this ad. >> steve: larry sabato said that ad that you're running now is the most devastating contrast ad he's ever seen before. >> my team will be very happy to have that. now i got to give a trophy or something, i guess. >> eric: colonel, we have to read this statement. this is from mr. murphy, his campaign. he said, quote, allen west is shamelessly attacking him for a mistake he made as a teen-ager, which he had discussed at length in the media as a mistake learned from. >> first of all, no one down in south florida knew about this and had not been discussed. i think it's represencible that they should talk about a contrast when they started off running ads with me stealing money from
for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that unemployment is above 8% and gas prices close not closinn on 4 bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the other guy or how do you get under the skin of the other guy to make it to your advantage with the american people? so last night charles krauthammer on "special report" had his theory about how mitt romney might be
. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the trajectory in some way. now, that washington post is actually good news for romney in a sense he is winning the expectations game. people assume that obama will be better. so that may mean he doesn't have to do as well as all that to surprise people and say this guy is really up to the job. but the pressure is really on romney to change the direction of this race and to, you know, let people know it's not necessarily over. that can be done in various debates. but this first one is going to form the most impressions. >> john harwood says only twice have these televised debates seemed to shift the outcome of the race. in 2004 george w. bush went up against al gore. in gore's case, a strategist thought he lost that debate in the spin room. so i wonder, matt, how much of this is decided by what the candidates actually say? and how much by the pundits the day after? >> i give the american people some credit. i think they can listen and watch. and most evidence has shown that people start paying atten
winner. laying the bench mark it's the debate falls into the media means of romney has to perform if he doesn't it's an excuse of another round in my mind of disgustingly biassed pieces of mitt romney. i believe phil is right when bara barack obama was challenged in the interview last week by jorge he was challenged really hard. he is uncomfortable when he is confronted with facts and simply worded questions. if mitt romney remind people we have 11.7 unemployment not 8.1 america's best days cannot be behind her they have to be in front of her i think he wins by not having a moment but having a moment of real leadership and real maturity. >> in that first debate wednesday october 3rd fox news channel coverage starts at precisely at 8:55 p.m. with meg megan kelly and bret baier. >> not a minute later than that. 8:55. >> before you leave your house let's get the first degree weather update. >> we have a lot of heavy ooifrn the weekend. todayed rain is over tennessee and the carolinas already starting to see some of that early this morning and some of the heavy rain into portions of eastern
are kinding expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something. i don't know if that's even possible right now. the public broadly speaking expects mitt romney to win. low expectations i suppose. the history as your comments suggest is that debates don't tend to change the trajectory of a presidential race very much. there has been a few cases where they have but just a few you are looking at this stage if you are a romney voter or fan for something that would change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will poi
since august." now, they're right debates are about moments but ain an amusin image. mitt romney sitting in a room peppering them with zingers. i would like to be on the wall hearing that. >> not about zingers, serious substantive policy. and in "the washington post" showing a virtual dead heat with the president and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of stuff in this poll. sort of mirrors what we've seen in a lot of recent national and state polls. president obama has advantages on a range of issues, however, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interes
berman. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >>> it's good to be mitt right now. romney is hitting the battlegrounds and hammering away at the president. >> here's the kicker. remember that hidden camera video of romney's controversial 47% remark? >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. 47% are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to provide for them, belief they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. they will vote for this president no matter what. >> remember that. and remember romney's explanation after the video was released. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question. it's a message i'll carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is tractive to people who are not paying taxes. because frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them and, therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who
st. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning, welcome everybody. our starting point this morning, crunch time in the race for the white house. just two days remain before president obama and mitt romney square off in denver for the first of three critical debates. president's being prepped in nevada today. and the gop challenger has some ground to make up because a brand-new "washington post"/abc news poll this morning has the president leading by two percentage points among likely voters. it's not unusual for candidates to try to lower expectations in the days leading up to dedebate. republicans have been playing up the president's eloquence, ever since last week. but it seems somebody forgot to tell new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside do
better. >> barack obama has momentum right now and everybody loves to have that, but mitt romney has the underdog advantage. if he could just come in and there seem to at least hold his own or -- come thursday, it's a new race, and it's possible for mitt romney, and if he gets stomped on by barack obama, many people will start saying this election is over, you'll see president obama's nine point poll advantage in ohio turn to something like 11 or 12, and without ohio, the republicans can't get the white house. >> doug brinkley, good to see you as always, doug. >>> "today's" show co-host, savannah guthrie shows us the one then she can't get a hold of. >>> the last of our top five trending stories, a fight as broken out. five million tourists visit the site every year ignoring the ban on flash photography and speaking very loudly. the manager of the vatican museum says limiting visitors is unthink essential. -- unthinkable. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the
accurate. i have been saying to all of you that governor romney has embraced the right and a budget. he has. -- ryan budget. he has. it is mainly getting the facts ready on the key issues. thank you. >> vice president joe biden was in iowa earlier today. his debate with paul ryan is about one week away. we will have that live for you on c-span. we're taking your reaction this morning from mitt romney and norfolfishersville, virginia. >> i like that he supports americans being able to own firearms. >> our next caller is on the democrats lined. caller: hello. i am a conservative democrat, a reagan democrat. people need to wake up. you have someone here who is running for president of the united states who will bring honesty and courage back to the united states. the president has been in office for almost four years. he has devastated this country. he has put us into some much debt that it will take a stand presidents to get as out of this mess. every time joe biden opens his mouth, he puts his foot into it. >> last time around, did you vote for john mccain? >> yes. i vote for the man and not
a little here. >> go right ahead. [laughter] >> a day or two before governor romney made his decision about his running mate, i was talking to another pollster. runs the democracy corps. they have been trying to use the ryan plan to beat republican members of congress over the head. like you said, nobody knew who paul ryan was. as we were getting off the phone, i said, i will give you this. i do not think governor romney is going to pick paul ryan. but if he does, we will have another conversation. it strikes me that democrats have not effectively made medicare and the rhine plan -- the ryan plan, i have seen the polling and how it moves people. i have not seen them in flicked a lot of bodily damage on republicans on the ryan plan, on medicare, so far. am i missing something? has it had a meaningful effect or not? >> the quick answer would be, we will find out in 33 days. >> apparently, we are going to find out in 33 days. [laughter] the first observation i make is that there is this presumption in the press, boy, paul ryan, what a risky mistake he was. test polls show that paul ryan genera
if elected he and mitt romney will work to protect the rights of gun owners. >>> today the guns of gangster couple bonnie and collide are being -- clyde are being auctioned off in new hampshire. they are going up for sale. both guns were found on the couple the day louisiana police killed them back in 1934. bidding will begin at $75,000 but the auction hopes to bring in at least $150,000 per gun. at the time of their death, bottom any and clyde were wanted for kidnapping, auto theft, robbery and 13 murders nationwide. >>> your time is 7:18. in an amber alert issued for two children in tennessee. the fire at their home and the mystery surrounding their disappearance. >> she made headlines for winning the lottery and then collecting welfare. the tragic final chapter to a michigan woman's story. >> warm to hotter temperatures are in the forecast for your sunday. i'll have a look at what you can expect for your neighborhood coming up. ireless receivers. blah, blah, blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom. no, we had to watch movies in the den because that's whe
since august. >> yeah. that's the word on the street. the romney campaign won't go there, carol. all they're going to say is, guess what? he's spending a lot of time getting ready. you're right. i don't have any sound fm mitt romney like dan had from the president. why? he hasn't done an event in a while. mitt romney, carol, he jumps on a plane today, goes out to colorado. he's got a campaign rally there tonight. but after that basically hunkers down. you mentioned john kerry, of course, you just heard from dan lothian john kerry is playing mitt romney. take a listen to john mccain. he spoke with candy crowley yesterday on "state of the union." john mccain the last man to debate president obama. >> i think both are excellent in their own way. i think you could argue that mitt has had a lot more recent experience. obviously. but also, candy, part of it depends on who's moderating. >> the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debate per. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> paul ryan on the sunday talk shows. the running mate talking down e
specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almost every swing state thement opened up a significant lead outside the margin of error in most cases. if tea lex were to be held today, it would be a shock if mitt romney were to win. he has to find a way to shake up that narrative. >> one of the things we've seen in the polls is older voters moving more in the direction towards president obama, and one of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan sever
right. but i don't know how, and so romney's got to have enough confidence in his intellectual acumen to get in there, but if he comes in with all this rehearsed stuff, he's just going to come across as a samb by. >> how do you feel about what the polls say right now? do you think romney is truly behind, or is that closer race than some would have us believe? >> i think romney is running a little bit behind but if he does well on wednesday night he's going to close the gap. look, romney has to look ahead. people know how they feel now. he can't say the president did this, that or the other thing. he has to say this is what i can do for you and make your life better. if he can do that, all right, and put the president on the defensive a few times, he'll gain. >> last thing on this, what do you think of the expectations game going on where each candidate is trying to outdo each other by complimenting each other's debating prowess? is this absurd or does it matter? >> like a football game, those people, play it down, tamp it down. it's all a game. you know that. >> let's talk about the b
in henderson, nevada tonight, he'll see none other than his opponent's wife, ann romney, who is hosting a rally there tonight. >> all right. peter alexander in boston. thank you, peter. >>> a deadly shooting at a vfw post in central florida has left two people dead, and another person injured. police say the shooting broke out as riders from a charity motorcycle event were eating breakfast. the incident is under investigation. >>> let's head to wall street. mandy drury is in the new york stokes for us. what are with you watching this week? >> we closed out a surprisingly good third quarter for the stock markets, natalie, the best since 2010. there is some caution now that we might be ready for a pullback in the market, especially if there is renewed weakness on the economic front, not just here, but globally, as well. as for gasoline, it's a new week and we're sitting for the national average at $3.78 a gallon right now. two cents lower than a week ago, four cents lower than a month ago. we wish it would go quicker to the down side. >> mandy drury at the new york stokes changes. >>> major rulin
out with politics now. you're still a republican, right? >> yes. >> but you haven't yet committed to mitt romney. why? >> well, i always wait until the last minute. and there's some very interesting debates coming up. and i think it's always nice when you see both of the candidates next to each other and debate the issues. and then you can -- >> there's a chance you could vote for president obama? >> i'm open-minded. i want to hear what everyone has to say. and i'm not one that just votes on one issue. i vote on the whole package so which one of the candidates has the best package? because no one is perfect. no one is exactly what you want. the i deal thing is if you could vote two candidates together. but that's not going to happen. so, you know, i keep an open mind. >> let's talk about the book a little bit. we asked maria shriver to comment. she has not given one to us. has she let you know what she thinks about it? >> well, i think it's very difficult, you know, obviously, for the family and the kids when this whole thing kind of gets brought back. >> then why write the book?
the facade of being a politician. all right. the president really basically just has to maintain his cool demeanor. they're both not going to say anything startling, you heard it all before if you pay attention. but it's the way that romney presents himself. it's like ronald reagan against jimmy carter. reagan was behind in the -- when he started to debate carter but he made carter almost look small. reagan was larger than life, he came across as authoritative yet accessible. if i were romney i'd be watching those reagan tapes. >> the word on the street is he has been doing a ton of preparation but also looking for zingers. things to kind of one-liners to nail the president with. do you think that's a good idea? >> look, i'm doing a debate with john stewart on saturday in washington and i'm sure stewart's going to have zingers all over the place. you come in with zingers you sound stupid. they have to just occur to you. so if stewart says something dumb which is almost a given i'm going to pop him. all right. but i don't know how. and so romney's got to have enough confidence in his intel

sounding like the professor he was before the white house. romney must come across relatable and really connect with voters. karen travers, abc news, washington. >> hmm. >> all right. >> talking about the whole style not substance. style? >> style is important. and particularly just likability, what people feel like they, they feel like they have a comfort zone with you. it's important. >> i don't think any body has prepared more so than mitt romney. expecting 50 million to 60 million eyeballs. >> how many zingers stuffed in their coat. got the zinger. bang. >> pull it out, boom. >> good sound bites coming up. >> as chris christie said. he is going to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. >> yes. >> okay. one way to put it. >> the first of three debates between the two men. really this is, the real important one. getting done to the wire. romney looking for a turnaround. this is big. >> this one is about domestic policy. the next one will be foreign policy. the third one will be a mix of both of them. so this coming wednesday, 9:00, 90 minutes. sit side by side, like two bar st
